Manhattan Portable Changeable Message Signs




This element represents Manhattan's portable changeable message signs. Those signs are used for special event traffic management, work zone traffic management, and potentially for providing travel time information. The signs are programmed and controlled locally. Future enhancements may include adding communications capabilities to allow signs to be remotely accessed and controlled by the Manhattan Traffic Operations Facility.
